US oil firm prosecutions show need for transparency – activists

TORONTO – Oil and gas companies with major US operations have been the subject of at least 30 prosecutions related to bribes paid to foreign governments under the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) since 2007, underscoring the urgent need for transparency regulations to tackle corruption in developing countries, activists and researchers say.

Royal Dutch Shell and Chevron Corp. are among the companies that have faced allegations of making illicit payments to foreign officials, according to research by Paasha Madhavi, a doctoral candidate at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). read more

China gets into bed with Putin

Screen Shot 2014-04-28 at 15.30.36Extract from an Investors Chronicle article published 29 May 2014

In the week in which Prince Charles demonstrated that he had inherited his father’s gift for diplomacy, Russia and China finally signed a $400bn (£238bn) gas supply deal that had been a decade in the making. The timing couldn’t have been better, at least from a Russian perspective. With all the talk centred on the political impasse in Ukraine, and the necessity for Europe to diversify its gas supplies away from Russia, Gazprom promptly turned around and secured a huge new export market at a single stroke. What does the Gazprom deal mean for the likes of BG Group (BG.) and Royal Dutch Shell (RDSB), both of which have expanded their LNG capacity to tap into Chinese industrial growth? read more

Shell, Iran and 9/11

Basically Shell is holding on to over $2 billion of  funds belonging to an ‘adjudicated terrorist’ – Iran – and is denying those funds to the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.

By John Donovan

I have already reported how Shell management attempted to exploit the 9/11 attacks for their own benefit.

I have also reported on how Shell disguised oil shipping movements in an attempt to evade US sanctions on Iran and how Shell panicked when I contacted Bill O’Reilly of Fox News calling for a related boycott of Shell in the USA. 

SHELL/IRAN – MORE RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

In December 2011, a US judge signed a judgement finding Iran one of the parties liable for the September 11, 2001 attacks. read more

Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 16.29.29BBC News report published 29 May 2014

Oil firm Shell has been issued with an improvement notice after an incident on a North Sea platform led to a partial downmanning of workers.

It happened on the Nelson installation in March.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) said Shell failed to ensure that a flexible hose assembly, related to a gas turbine, was maintained in good repair.

The company was given until the end of June to make changes.

A Shell spokesman said: “We are working towards the action requirements of the improvement notice.” read more
